When Boom Blox, the first in a videogame partnering between EA and Steven Spielberg was released to questionable sales, many wrote the game off as a failure and another nail in the “third-parties cannot survive on the Wii” coffin. But, EA says the title is doing just fine, and now have some numbers to prove it.
During an investor conference call yesterday, CFO Eric Brown said that the title has sold over 450,000 copies since its launch this May. The title “continues to sell well,” was added by CEO John Riccitiello. This news comes a few weeks after Riccitiello’s “it met our expectations” comment and sequel hinting at E3.
